We Moved!

Our quaint Georgetown shop served us well for four years, but as the boxes slowly started taking over, it became clear we’d outgrown the space. Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve been packing up our old offices at WeWork and 3212 O Street to make the transition to our new home at 300 Tingey Street SE.

Countryside Photo Shoot in Maryland

Early Sunday morning, we drove out to Poolesville, MD, to shoot the new H&C OCBDs (oxford cloth button-down shirts) launching later this week. It was a gorgeous day, and one of the first that truly felt like fall. Temperatures hovered in the high-50s, low-60s. A steady breeze made us reach for our casual blazers (coming soon!). Thin, wispy clouds covered the sky, […]

Friday Style, Issue #8

We’re all for taking bold risks when it comes to color and print, and this Friday Style proves that. From camo to electric blue, we kept things interesting. The monochromatic backdrop is the mural on the side of the Capital Checkers Club at 9th and S, a DC institution since 1982. While the building itself is inconspicuous, the artwork on its side is […]

H&C Team in Tees on the Mall

Fun on the Mall in Our New Tees

We’re a small startup, so you can bet we put in long hours. But we also never miss an opportunity to have fun on the job. When we shot our Kickstarter video for our new Fitted T-Shirts, we rented bikes from Capital Bikeshare and raced around the National Mall playing tourists for a day. We decided to have a friendly competition to […]

We hit our Kickstarter goal!

Some highlights: $31,032 pledged 550 backers from around the world 1,188 T-shirts and counting! And we’re just getting started! Stay […]

Friday Style, Issue #7

This week was full of firsts: We launched our first Kickstarter. To fund the first T-shirt available in our 12 signature sizes. Which will be the first complex H&C garment produced in the USA. Needless to say, things have been pretty exciting around here! So, for this week’s Friday Style, we wanted to wear the new H&C Fitted […]
